Ingredients

cooking spray

4 spray(s)

uncooked bok choy

3 pound(s), baby variety, halved lengthwise

unsalted butter

1½ Tbsp, or salted, melted

olive oil

1½ Tbsp

lime zest

3 Tbsp, snipped

Instructions

  1. Off heat, coat a grill rack with cooking spray. Preheat grill to medium heat
  2. Off heat, generously coat bok choy with cooking spray; season to taste, if desired. Grill bok choy, 4 minutes; flip and cook until grill marks are evident and stalks are tender, 4–6 minutes more. Transfer to a serving platter.
  3. Combine butter, oil, lime zest, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl; toss to coat. Drizzle over grilled bok choy and sprinkle with chives; serve with lime wedges.

Notes

If you can only find regular-sized bok choy, increase the grilling time to 7 to 8 minutes per side.
